Just wondered if I order a Quaife MA diff today would it come with the crownwheel? As i believe you can't use the standard crownwheel....

no it does not your need to use the one in the box, so I dont know who said that to you

it needs cleaning up then pressing on to the lsd


you can buy them from quife with it fitted tho for alot more money so do ask

Stu's one I fitted needed machining to fit a couple of ball bearings to stop the crownwheel slipping around which I belive they have had a problem with in the past, Not a nice job at all

yes but you didnt moan when seeing the green LOL

I would recommend miles for this job didnt take him long at all and its still going strong, the whole box is and its had a year of hammering then stood up then a hammering etc etc since a week of fitting the gearbox it was on a track for most of the day

p.s. miles can get you the lot if you pm him

I only ask because I have found a lsd at univeristy and suspect it to fit a MA box. The diff though excepts a bolted crownwheel not a interference fit type (its definitly not a BE diff as the crownwheel bolt offset is smaller) Im nearly 99% sure its for a MA!

Anyone found one like this before?

Never seen one like that, The other problem is getting th MA boxes apart thank's to shallow torx bolts and thread lock, nice combo

I've got a Gripper LSD in my 106. I'm 99% sure that's got a bolted crownwheel...
